#Hudson Yards

NEW YORK CITY, USA

Creatively lead by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), UAP collaborated with Related Companies and Tutor Perini Corporation to deliver over 830 cast aluminium panels, 4 desk encasements and a column wrap for the distinct lobby entry of 10 Hudson Yards. Standing fifty-two storeys high, the building is part of the largest private real estate development in US history to date — Hudson Yards in New York.

Designed and fabricated by UAP, each of the elements were realised by pouring molten aluminium into hand-crafted moulds, yielding a truly unique texture over the 10,000 sq ft (929 sq m) area. The result creates a distinct and vibrant atmosphere which aligns with the architect’s vision of creating dynamic spaces for the public.
